    Does Julie Andrews Approve of the New Sound of Music, Starring Carrie Underwood?

    What does Julie Andrews think of NBC's upcoming Sound of Music telecast, and will she be in it? These seem to be the big questions on fans’ minds since the announcement of the live event. Well, the film’s original Maria von Trapp broke her silence in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal in which she answered all these questions and more.

    “Listen, how long ago was it out? 50 something years ago? 48 years, probably time that a remake is allowed,” Andrews said when asked if she gives the production her seal of approval. “Why not? Cinderella has been done, Mary Poppins has been put on stage in the theater. It’s all part of the process of those wonderful properties going out and reaching another audience.”

    As for if fans can expect Andrews to appear in the made-for-TV movie, the Oscar winner simply said, “No, I won’t be in it, but I do endorse everything. I mean why not?”

    In addition to looking forward to the final product, Andrews also expressed her interest in meeting country superstar Carrie Underwood, who will take on the nun-turned-nanny in the musical. “I don’t know her, and I would love to know her,” Andrews said of the Grammy winner. “And maybe I will.”

    The Sound of Music premiered on Broadway in 1959 and became a critical and financial success, even taking home the Tony Award for Best Musical. The 1965 film version, starring Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won the Oscar for Best Picture.
    She wants to meet Carrie!! http://www.broadway.com/buzz/167173/...rie-underwood/

    This made my WHOLE Day! The fact that Carrie sort of got Julie's blessing (if you read between the lines) is a really big deal and so great! Take that HATERS!

    I tweeted this so I hope Carrie sees it, and I hope they meet!

    Well said! And she is getting pretty good comments this time on the Broadway site. Mostly positive. Much better then last time.

    Thats really sweet and generous of her to say.
    Great singers should, and usually do, respect great singers.
    I mean why wouldn't they?
    I'm sure it would be a dream come true for Carrie for sure.
    Very cool.

    The broadway format of which this show is going to use Carrie is playing Mary Martin's role.
